World Autism Awareness Week 30 March – 5 April 

World Autism Awareness Week is back and we can’t wait to celebrate! Autism West Midlands will be working hard to raise awareness and vital funds during World Autism Awareness Week. We are hoping this year will be bigger and better and we really want you to be involved! We are asking all schools, colleges, businesses and individuals to work alongside us to ensure we raise vital funds in order to continue the work we do!

“I was delighted to support Autism West Midlands and their Silly Sock Day during World Autism Awareness Week 2019. Autism West Midlands do fantastic work supporting local autistic people and their families. We all had a great time at Priestley Smith Primary School, it was a brilliant day!”
